LOCATION

Hilo, Hawaii

Our program is based in Hawaii, and our surroundings play a large role in our therapeutic practices—from horticultural therapy to outdoor recreational activities and the communities our students serve. Pacific Quest operates on a 25-acre farm with residential homes and facilities.

Reed’s Bay Facility

Pacific Quest at Reed’s Bay sits on a 5-acre waterfront property. The 8,000 square-foot facility includes a large commercial kitchen and simple but modern sleeping quarters. A portion of each student’s stay takes place at our tropical farming site, where students learn gardening skills and set their own goals for their success in the program.

Homes

Situated in an agricultural community just 15 min southeast of Hilo, our three well-equipped homes provide a platform for community living. View more photos >

The transformation our son experienced at Pacific Quest was profound and lasting. Their unique integration of Horticulture therapy into a comprehensive therapeutic program focusing on reflection, personal responsibility, and family dynamics, combined with the unwavering support of compassionate professionals makes Pacific Quest exceptional among wilderness therapy programs for challenged adolescents. Because of Pacific Quest, our son will have a chance for the healthy, meaningful life he deserves.
